Overview

Lexington Glassworks, located in the heart of downtown Asheville, NC, was born out of the desire to create timeless and innovative hand-blown glass. Each piece is skillfully crafted using century old techniques and locally sourced material with the singular goal of creating top-notch work. The gallery features high quality custom lighting and handmade glass for any budget. Lexington Glassworks is a makers studio where the public is invited to view the artists at work. While here take the unique opportunity to enjoy a locally crafted beer, this is truly an Asheville experience. Note: We do not blow glass on Tuesdays.

Impressive glass blowing observation. Many reasonably priced beautiful blown glass items available to purchase. We purchased a medium sized round gorgeous sphere.

Lovely! The employees were warm and welcoming, the demonstration was flexible in terms of duration and art piece being made ... my 10 and 12 year old were completely engaged. A reasonably quick (up to an hour) stop for art exposure for kids and adults...More
